In a pre-COVID world, child care was challenging for working parents. The cost, accessibility and affordability of child care is one of the largest drivers of turnover (leading to 50% of mothers leaving the workforce), along with absenteeism (parents miss an average of 30 days of work per year) and lost productivity. COVID has “set the house on fire” resulting in over 2.2 Million mothers leaving the workforce, and the average parent spending 27 more hours per week on child care. This has forced organizations to confront the fact that child care is a universal concern that affects all employees, and that employee benefits have inadequately addressed this issue. C-Suite and HR Leaders must act quickly as America maps the return to work this fall.

Employers looking to support their employees have gone through three distinct phases on the way back to “normalcy”: “wait and see”, “flexibility and triage” and “settling into routine.” September 1st is quickly approaching, successful “Return to Work” strategies should explore both sides of that coin for working families: what it means to return physically to the office in some capacity, and what it means to return as a working parent.

Join us for this exclusive panel featuring Charles Bonello, CEO & Co-Founder of Vivvi, Britt Sinha, Corporate Director, Benefits, Health & Wellbeing of NewYork-Presbyterian, Eileen Benwitt, EVP, Chief Talent Officer of Horizon Media & our special guest moderator, Lori Mihalich-Levin, JD, Founder and Author of the Mindful Return, LLC as they discuss the ways we can prepare ourselves to return to the office AND support a workforce that addresses the needs of working parents and our employees.

During this webinar, we will cover those burning questions being asked:

  • How are America's leaders thinking about returning to work?
  • What are some strategies to support working parents, especially mothers?
  • How do you measure the ROI of returning to work and investing in parents?
  • What are some examples from industries that can serve as blueprints?

Join us for this exclusive panel for insights you won't want to miss!
